It looks like gmail finally understands Outlook Calendar entries

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

For a very long time, gMail did nothing with Outlook Calendar entires.

So I had to view at the message source, then translate them to Google Calendar entries myself.

Content-Type: text/calendar; charset="utf-8"; method=REQUEST
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64


As of late, they seem to be processed into Google Calendar compatible entries. Nice!

Cool: [WayBack] Just wanted to tell that the Google+ Optimizer now has a cross post to Diaspora – Feature…. – Ole Albers – Google+.

Get it from [WayBack] Ghosttown – Optimizer – Chrome Web Store

The Google+ – Optimizer increases the user experience with Google+ until the bitter end…
With this extension you can modify and arrange your google+ stream just like you want.

Some of the Features:
* Remove unwanted content ("suggested contacts, youtube-comments,animated gifs...)
* Display additional content (stopwatch)
* Filter by Hashtag
* Autosave-Feature

... and more

The first time you open a page on, you see this:

Then when you post a removable information bar:

That directs you to the configuration (either right click the icon, or follow, where in the main item, you can enter your diaspora host (in my case pluspora) information:

Quickly finding and debugging jQuery event handlers with findHandlersJS – The Blinking Caret

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/16

tl;dr: Finding event handlers registered using jQuery can be tricky. findHandlersJS makes finding them easy, all you need is the event type and a jQuery selector for the elements where the events might originate.

I need to invest some time in using this: [WayBackQuickly finding and debugging jQuery event handlers with findHandlersJS – The Blinking Caret

Why Are My Text Messages Stuck Pending | Pushbullet Help Central

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/15

Try this fix first:

For many, this issue goes away by simply reinstalling our Android app on your phone. We suggest giving this a try first.

That didn’t work, but this did:

Check that the correct device is selected in the top left of the SMS interface.

You may have an old device selected, which is preventing SMS from working correctly. Check that the correct device is selected in the drop down. You can remove old devices here.

It looks like all my old smartphones were still there despite not being a SIM card in them. Removing all but my active phone solved the problem.

If you have trouble getting an screen mirror from Samsung S7 Edge to Chromecast 2 to work: reboot phone

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/25

A friend of mine tried to get screen mirror (now called “Smart View”) from a Samsung S7 Edge to a Chromecast 2 working, but the connection would time out each try (but not when casting regular content using the Google Home app): try rebooting your S7 Edge.

Got that reboot tip and renamed functionality thanks to the somewhat related [WayBack] Galaxy S7: How to Screen Mirror to any Samsung Smart TV:

In order to connect (screen mirror) you Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge to your Samsung smart TV you need to swipe down to open your notification area, then on the top right click that little down arrow then select “smart view”. Previous Galaxy phones called it screen mirror, not sure why Samsung changed the name in the S7.

Got the renamed functionality via the video below.
